Construction Career DaySome of our Johnson City High School students joined nearly 600 students from school districts throughout the Broome-Tioga region to attend Wednesday’s annual Southern Tier Construction-Technology Career Day, designed for students to learn firsthand what awaits them in the construction career field.

The event, held at the Broome County Highway Department facility in Chenango Bridge, featured exhibits from a variety of organizations and schools associated with the construction industry, as well as trade displays and heavy equipment demonstrations.

For many students, the hands-on experience included the opportunity for supervised operation of equipment such as bulldozers, backhoes, and dump trucks.

Construction-Technology Career Day was designed to introduce high school students to the career opportunities and unlimited potential for advancement within the construction industry. This program is open to students in grades 9 through 12.

The event was organized by a consortium of groups, including the New York State Department of Transportation, the Broome County Highway Department, Broome-Tioga Workforce New York, Broome-Tioga BOCES Career Development Center (CDC), and several local companies and trade unions involved in the construction industry.
